Marketplace for Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Hostess, maker of Twinkies, has won court approval to wind down. More and more companies are switching from Blackberry to iPhones and other Apple products. The Texas A&M football team has been wildly successful and it’s got others looking to cash in on the glory. Some video game companies are using the crowd-funding site Kickstarter to raise millions of dollars, but there is no guarantee that people will get the video games they want. We hear about whether federal insurance money should go to people whose houses have been repeatedly destroyed by natural disasters. And we ask a plumber if Thanksgiving is one of the busiest days for the industry.
